The 2 Bears

Hot Chip had a pretty busy 2012 with the release of their own great album, In Our Heads, plus the debut albums by side projects New Build (whose lineup includes Felix Martin and Al Doyle) and The 2 Bears (whose lineup includes Joe Goddard, who also has solo material out).

The 2 Bears (a duo, whose lineup is completed by Raf Rundell) finds Goddard in much more straight-up good times party mode than Hot Chip's relatively artier vibe. Their debut album, Be Strong, is a lot of fun and you can stream it below. The 2 Bears don't have much of an itinerary for 2013 but they do have a one-off in NYC scheduled to take place April 8 at Le Poisson Rouge, one day before Hot Chip play their one-off at Roseland Ballroom. Tickets for the LPR show are on sale now. Tickets for Hot Chip's Roseland show are still available too.

Joe Goddard will also be in NYC even sooner to DJ Cameo Gallery on February 9. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Flyer for the Cameo show and a stream of The 2 Bears album plus music videos are below...

well this is absolutely unbelievable. this is a blatant rip-off of Claymation Velociraptor and I, for one, will NOT stand for it.

I think I saw them doing a bowed saw and washboard duo at the Graham Ave L station a while back. IIRC they had some hipster chick doing interpretive dance as well. Truly horrible.

Wait, so The 2 Bears is a Claymation Velociraptor cover band, right? If not, no offense (well kinda) total knock off.
